High Chaparral Motel
Ranked #5 of 15 Cairns B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 November 2013

We were impressed with our motel style accommodation when we stayed recently. The kitchenette was a bonus. Neat & tidy with well kept gardens. Would recommend this to anyone looking for value for money.

Stayed14 nights very disapointed with management allowing some of the rooms to be used by sex workers.Our room under 207 was exremely noisy with all the action that was going on .Made a number of complaints to management with regards of what went on,and it took 10 days to be relocated . Also I find the smoke alarm way to close to the cooking facility to make full use of it but the bbq area makes up for it

Room Tip: upper level is better less noisy

One nighter out early next morning, cheap is good. Dont need nothing too fancy, and the High Chaparral futted the bill, and was quite a suprise. It is exactly what it is, a good budget motel, big room, big bed, clean sheets, big shower, nice towels well clean. Well positioned for supplies, kebabs, fish n chips, local grocer come supermarket, pizza, 5 minutes gets you to the Cock and Bull where 15 bucks gets you what just be the the biggest meal going, so its well positioned. Theres a bit of a hike to town or the esplanade, 20 mins, but its well positioned for an exit by air. Great falue.

We were here for a couple of nights and whilst this place is not a world-beater it is fine. We had to move between rooms and I have to say they are spotless. It's an old place and on the highway. Well cared for. The staff are pleasant enough and we had no problems. A decent BBQ area and small pool. Don't expect 5 star and you'll be fine. It's a budget motel with 80s decor but decent.

You have to drive to the city centre or walk around 20-25 minutes.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the main road.

The place is nicely located on Sheridan St. and in walking distance to downtown. The rooms are spacious and beds are good. Excellent WiFi-connection free of charge!
The rooms are not cleaned very well, if housekeeping shows up at all. It would need a thorough refresh. Otherwise nothing fancy, nothing bad. The owners seem to be pretty relaxed and not very interested in what's going on.

My overal impression of the place is...not bad for a budget type of accomodation. If it is to rank a bit higher among its peers, the Service have to be upgraded but then it all depends on the Operators, of course. Over all I have no complaints but can't rave about it either although I definitely enjoyed my Brief sojourn in Cairns and were I to know that I would derive so much pleasure during the tours ...meeting those friendly Tour Guides,the sceneries, and co travellers I would have had planned a longer stay.

Room Tip: A good place for travellers who love their solace and a who are budget conscious. I enjoyed walking...
